While some identify trick-or-treating in ancient customs of several previous tribes, modern trick-or-treating is assumed to be a custom borrowed from guising or mumming in England, Scotland, and Ireland. These involve dressing in costume and singing a rhyme, doing a magic trick, or telling a story in exchange for a sweet. Some have traced the earliest print reference to the term 'trick or treat' in Canada, in the 1920s. But in the practice, it didn’t really take hold in the US until the 1930s because it wasn’t always well received.
Why can we pass out candy on Halloween rather than soul cakes now? Why can we trick-or-treat differently today than we did before? because it seems, candy was simply far more popular after the war than soul cakes were, so kids began to receive those sweets instead. So unless soul cakes make a comeback, you'll probably expect to continue giving out trick-or-treat candy for years to return. But don’t expect any children to sing to you before you dole it out of these Halloween candy bowls! You should possibly plan to continue handing out trick-or-treat candy for years to come if soul cakes do not make a comeback. But don't ask you to sing to any young people until you dole it out of those bowls of Halloween candy!
